"Miller has given us a fuller look at the men who made up a typical black regiment with the Army of the Potomac. Miller's book is a study in regimental demographics—where the men came from, whether they were free blacks or escaped slaves, their educational backgrounds, their service records, and their postwar fates."—Gregory J. W. Urwin, author of Facing Fearful Odds: The Siege of Wake Island
"Miller explores the appalling levels of racial antipathy in Illinois that formed the backdrop for the unit's creation and ugly opportunism that underpinned state support for a black regiment."—Civil War History
